Presented by Yard Heads International and Sing Sistah Sing!

Tales of Transatlantic Freedom is a glorious exploration of our global musical heritage. Out of the pain of the diaspora narrative comes the richness of spirituals, jazz, blues, gospel, opera and the songs of Robert Burns. From across oceans and centuries, this moving and awe-inspiring musical journey reminds audiences of our shared humanity, our cultural interconnectedness, and our potential for healing and true reconciliation.


Coralie Usmanie, Chief Executive, Jazz Scotland and one of Made in Scotland 2023 panellists, talks about the reasons why Tales of Tansatlantic Freedom was selected to be a part of the MiS showcase.
